Community Planning and Research

We are specialists in outcomes focused integrated community strategic planning and social research particularly for local government and NGOs. Our process is based on evidence based quantitative and qualitative social research and stakeholder engagement. We add value and depth to your project through our strong understanding of not just social and strategic planning but also how services and policies are delivered and implemented.
